The deputy of the province of Salta (northeast) then took out a breast from the black T-shirt worn by the young woman and began to kiss her.
The parliamentary session was first interrupted and then suspended by the President of Parliament, Sergio Massa.
He tried to apologize
"Throughout these months of teleworking we have lived through different situations where one deputy fell asleep or another hid, but today we have experienced a situation that goes beyond the rules of decorum of this house," a launched Sergio Massa.
Confused, Juan Emilio Ameri tried to apologize, explaining that he thought he was not logged in at the time.
“Here, throughout the interior of the country, the connection is very bad.
My partner came out of the toilet, I asked her how her prostheses were and I kissed her, because ten days ago she was operated on for breast prostheses, ”defended the 47-year-old deputy who should know within five days the sanction imposed by Parliament.
